review The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman Julietta Henderson ✓ 7 review review The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman 107 Imself The problem is Norman’s not the funny one Jax wasThere’s also another far colossal objective on Norman’s new plan that his single mom Sadie wasn’t ready for he wants to find the father he’s never known Determined to put a smile back on her boy’s face Sadie resolves to face up to her own messy past get Norman to. I enjoyed The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman It s not perfect but it avoids most of the pitfalls which could have spoiled it and I found it readable amusing and touchingLet s face it it could have been dreadful a twelve year old boy with psoriasis dreams of doing a comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe with his best friend who is the funny one but the best friend dies suddenly His single mum and her very elderly friend decide to help him do a Fringe show anyway and try to find out who his father is to boot It could be sloppy sentimental manipulative drivel and I m not even sure why I tried it to be honest but I m glad I did because it s nothing of the kindPart of what makes it so good is the narrative voices of both Norman and his mum Sadie Both are convincing insightful in their own ways and amusing too Norman s slightly naive but thoughtful and often funny take on things like the grief of losing your best and only friend is both powerful and very engaging as is Sadie s angst ridden parental outlook Julietta Henderson manages to avoid sentimentality to a great extent I was especially impressed with the way she dealt with the book s climax of The Show itself and shows us two people dealing with real difficulties and growing while avoiding the trite hammered home Life Lessons which so often pollute books like this The search for Norman s dad is well done I think although the ending does get pretty ridiculous and perhaps just spills over into schmaltz a little but I could forgive that because much of the book is so good I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this It s a very good enjoyable read with some genuine content and I can recommend itMy thanks to Bantam Press for an ARC via NetGalley

review The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman Julietta Henderson ✓ 7 review review The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman 107 The Fringe and help track down a man whose identity is a mystery even to her Julietta Henderson’s delightfully charming tender and uplifting debut takes us on a road trip with a mother and son who will live in the reader’s heart for a long time to come and teaches us that no matter the odds we must always reach for the stars. Oh my heart I have just finished reading The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman and I am in love With 11 year old Norman with his loving mum Sadie and with Jax Norman s best friend who dies before the two boys can realise their dream of performing at the Edinburgh Fringe as a comedic duo by age 15 Oh and Leonard I m completely smitten with Leonard the old guy who walks out of his cleaning job at Sadie s workplace to help her and Norman honour Jax s memory by getting Norman that gig at the Edinburgh Fringe and also ticking off the other item that has been added to Norman s plan to find his father The unlikely trio set off on a road trip in Leonard s vintage Austin and what follows is an adventure that will have you feeling the gamut of emotions I felt sad protective and proud of sweet young Norman who bravely pursues his dream of performing on the big stage even though he is mourning the loss of Jax and dealing with a severe flare up of his life long affliction with psoriasis With Sadie I felt sympathy and concern Here is a single mum who has lost all confidence in herself and in the world and who determines to help her son through his time of grief while at the same time fighting her own demons from her sad past Then there s Leonard who seemingly appears out of nowhere to save the mother and son duo when unbeknownst to them they are actually saving him I felt grateful for him for his take charge attitude and for his giant heartPlus the cast of amazing characters we meet along the way I love all of them too despite their foibles and flaws Reminiscent of the movie Little Miss Sunshine this debut novel by Julietta Henderson is a pure delight that will warm the cockles of your heart have you laughing teary and ultimately restore your faith in humankind The story is told in first person with the chapters switching from the cynical but often humorous voice of Sadie to the endearing and innocent voice of Norman Like every good book there is one memorable scene that stays with you after you ve turned that last page Mine is the one that involves Norman one of his potential fathers a bad guy and a high speed pursuit on a moped Straight from a movie I could not have picked a better book to start the new year with and I m uite sad that my time with these characters is over
